## Is Lxwxh an area?

Length, area, and volume, Dimensional measures of one-, two-, and three-dimensional geometric objects. All three are magnitudes, representing the “size” of an object. Length is the size of a line segment (see distance formulas), area is the size of a closed region in a plane, and volume is the size of a solid.

## How are dimensions listed in order?

Listed dimensions are always inside dimensions. The first dimension to measure is length. Length is always the longest side of the box that has a flap. The next dimension is width.

## What does LxWxH equal?

Multiply the length (L) times the width (W) times the height (H). The formula looks like this: LxWxH For this example, to calculate the volume of the object the formula would be 10 x 10 x 10 = 1,000 cubic inches.
